Doll Break: It's an Innocent World

This week on Doll Break, it's (almost) all about Innocent World dolls from Groove. It was fairly recently that Groove started making collaboration pieces with major Japanese fashion brands, but with fan girls like me not b...

Cooking, Re-ment style

So, I happened upon a tweet earlier today from The Beast Brothers that led me to these videos of a Re-ment collector giving us a pint-sized cooking demonstration. The user, RRcherrypie, is from Japan and has a pretty nice lit...

Re-Ment tiny house makes a temporary return

I just got word from Priscilla (aka NRFB Queen) that she was able to get a hold of a few sets of the Re-Ment tiny house series which were previously only available in test markets in Japan. I have to admit that, while I do my...

We have had quite a few ReMent reviews on Tomopop in the past few weeks, but it seems like none of them have focused on what ReMent is known for: tiny food! Well, the Hello Kitty display case had food in it, but it wasn't the food that we were looking at!

Today, we're going to be looking at a lovely tea party set that is in ReMent's collaboration line with Sanrio. This set focuses on the "Little Twins" characters, who haven't really spread in popularity to the US. However, this set is cute enough without knowing their backstory! Suffice to say, they live in the sky and drink a lot of tea. So let's get cracking and see how this set fairs in action!

Tomopop Review: Re-Ment Hello Kitty Hinamatsuri Set

Hinamatsuri or Girl's Day is celebrated on March 3rd in Japan and what better way to celebrate the so-called Doll Festival than with a traditional Hinamatsuri set for your dolls! It's so meta that I can't contain myself! Re-Ment produced its first Hinamatsuri set, which is comprised of an imperial Heian-period court stacked in tiers, this time last year. The set was detailed, amazing and quite expensive, but it sold out quickly none the less.

This year, Re-Ment is back with two simplified versions of last year's Hinamatsuri set consisting of only the first platform, which only holds the Emperor and Empress. Alongside the traditional set, Re-Ment also produced a Hello Kitty set. Upon hearing this I completely lost my mind and almost ordered two sets just so I could keep one in the box. Finally, when my breathing returned to normal, I ended up ordering just the one, which I'll be showing you after the jump. Join me, won't you?

I have a lot of ReMent food miniatures. And when I say a lot, I mean a lot. Enough to feed a Nendoroid army for a year! I usually just take them out for shoots, and only a few are actually displayed with my collection. That is really a shame, because they are awesome figures that deserve to be shown off.

Well, ReMent has decided to fix this issue by making display cases just for your tiny foodstuffs! They look like traditional bakery-style cases, plus they have Hello Kitty on them. Amazing, right? Not only are they an awesome way to display your stuff, but they allow for some pretty fun scenarios with your toys, too. So hit the jump to check out how it looks in use!

Tomopop Review: ReMent Realistic Insect Magnets Set

Last time I did a ReMent review, it was of the super-adorable Cute Cats set, which definitely lived up to its name! Well, today we're going to look at something a little bit different. And by a little bit different, I mean "only cute if you like things with more than 4 legs." Just like the Cute Cats, the Realistic Insects set definitely lives up to the realistic portion of its name! Although this does bring up the curious reasoning behind why we tend to find anything with more than 4 legs creepy. A dog with 3 legs is oh-so-cute, but bugs -- no way!

Actually, I've always liked bugs. I'm a big arachnophobe, and centipedes give me the willies, but ever since I was little I've been a fan of the insect population. I had some pet caterpillars when I was 9, but ... well, let's just say they met an unfortunate end with one of the fluffy members of my family. Thankfully there are no caterpillars in this set to bring back memories of my long-lost pets! Well, enough with the reminiscing, hit the jump to check out these creepy-crawlies in action.

Here at Tomopop, we cover a lot of different figures. However, figures for your figures are a category that often goes unreported. ReMent is one of the companies that makes tiny versions of real life things for your figures, from food to teeny animals. A while back I did a Show and Tell on Crammed Pets, an awesome ReMent set of... well, animals crammed in small things! No, it's not nearly as cruel as it sounds -- it's actually totally adorable!

Today, we're going to take a look at some more small plastic animals that might just make the perfect pets for your own figures! So hit the jump to check out these teeny felines, and see if your collection needs some new furry additions.
